Can Everyone at least give me a moment ?
Posted by Tanker - Builder on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 3:18 PM

  This is hard to say guys .I am not given to emotion much especially after the last nine or ten years . The out pouring of caring equates to me a Flubbing Churchgoer , as an epiphany .

   Even though I still cannot do some of the simplest things here , you All have shown respect and courtesy always .That's why I love it here ! Getting woozy from the meds But I got home at two Texas Time and Like the man said Freedom at last , Freedom at last . They felt for the safety of this fragile pump I would keep an operational Defribrillator / Pacemaker .

 There was a section ( for modelers only ) 9.5 centimeters x 2.5 centimeters by a thickness on the back of my heart a full .75 centimeters , That's almost the whole side of the pumping side . It's alright now . Now the real healing starts . Not a Hospital regime . No Driving for a month ! No model building for at least a week . . Women , Well that's anyones guess , Especially me .   T .

I'm very glad you're home, T.B. Good that the doctor's were able to address the issue you had, I wish you a fast and complete recovery.

Girl chasing is excellent therapy, but ask them to run slow or wait at least one week. Keep us posted, always good to hear from you.

Glad you've escaped the hospital's clutches.  Know the deal with the Pacer/Defib, have one as well.  Only a month of not driving, lol, they gave me 6 months.


Take it easy and follow their regime, you'll be back at the bench in no time.

Glad to hear things are better TB. Rest up and get ready for some building time.

Years ago I had a really bad on-duty car accident where I busted my jaw in two places, and a bunch of other injuries. I spent 3 months recouperating and spending a lot of time model building. That was my therapy since I couldn't even talk due to my jaws being wired shut. 

I wish you all the best and a speedy recovery my friend.



Too many models to build, not enough time in a day.
